Holey Moly! Big Gay Ice Cream and Federal Donuts Are Teaming Up for Some Birthday Shenanigans

"This thing is big enough for two people, easy. Tell yourself that as you hork the whole thing down."

Philly's Big Gay Ice Cream is officially a year old (as of April 30). That's an entire year of Salty Pimps, Bea Arthurs, and American Globs simultaneously inducing chocolate-covered smiles and destroying New Year's resolutions around Philadelphia. So to celebrate, they're partnering with big-deal donut shop, Federal Donuts, for a one-weekend-only sundae, which Big Gay Ice Cream co-owner Doug Quint calls, "a gut burster".

This Friday to Sunday (May 6-8), head over to the shop on Broad and South Streets, and order it for $9.43 — as mentioned above, it's big enough for two people. Here's what's inside:

  • Federal Donuts cinnamon brown sugar donuts, one full size and two mini.
  • Horchata soft-serve, because it's also Cinco de Mayo
  • Hot fudge.
  • Cinnamon sugar and cayenne pepper.
  • Whipped cream
  • Sprinkles. "Because everything needs sprinkles."
Store hours go till midnight on Friday and Saturday, and 10 p.m. on Sunday.
